講演者: Professor Jordan Sand, Georgetown University
プログラム:

Professor Sand will talk about his forthcoming book, Tokyo Vernacular: Common Spaces, Local Histories, Found Objects (UC Press, 2013). The book examines how Tokyo acquired a historical identity in the late twentieth century. It traces a trajectory of citizen engagement with the city from political activism in public squares to community preservation movements and local history, to urban exploration and found art, then to museum exhibits of commonplace objects and scenes.
Jordan Sand is Associate Professor of Japanese History at Georgetown University. He is the author of House and Home in Modern Japan (Harvard, 2004) as well as a variety of essays on Japanese urbanism, material culture and the history of everyday life.
